My previous Tiberius in my Imperial Rome collection was one of the first Roman coins I ever bought a very long time ago. It was a Caesar issue and not very attractive.

I have finally upgraded this and it came today. Pretty happy with it.

AR Denarius, A.D. 22 - 30, Lugdunum, 18.5mm, 3.38g, 90, RIC I 26, RSC 16.
Obv: TI CAESAR DIVI AVG F AVGVSTVS. Laureate head right
Rev: PONTIF MAXIM. Livia, as Pax, seated right on throne, holding long scepter & olive branch.



Here was the coin I previously had in there:

I would say that's an excellent upgrade.

One of my first coins was of Tiberius as well. In my case, I didn't even know that I actually purchased a Drachm. When I couldn't find a complete attribution, I found out the difference between my coin and a Denarius. Therefore, I am still on the look out for a coin like yours.

Tiberius Mount Argaeus drachms of Cappodocia are scarcer than tribute pennies, but they are less well known.

I'll have to check, but I don't think I have a Tiberius in my Roman collection yet; AFAIK out of the 12 Caesars I only have Caligula (provincial), Claudius, Galba, and I think maybe one of the Flavians but not very sure. Hopefully I'll manage to get something, but Tiberius coins are in high demand.
Come to think of it, I also have a low-grade Divus Augustus bronze - not sure what to count it under...

@MartiVitori - your other Tiberius coin looks very interesting! What is it supposed to say, is it silver or bronze, and what does the patterned box thing mean?
[EDIT: some googling tells me it's an "altar of the three Gauls in Lugdunum". Never heard of it before. Definitely an intriguing issue!]
